How Can You Be Sure Your Security Staff is Trustworthy?
- Successful completion of BSIS guard card training: BSIS guard card training includes an initial eight hour guard card course, as well as 32 additional hours of coursework.
- Registration with California Bureau of Security & Investigative Services (BSIS): Registration ensures the security guard you hire has taken essential training courses, learned the skills needed to succeed in the security industry, and passed a background check.
- A clean background check: A clean background check means that the applicant has not committed any crimes or gotten any black marks on his record before applying for the job.
- Good references: It is helpful to talk with past employers who know the job candidate and who can tell you whether the individual was trustworthy and reliable or not. Past references in the field of security are best, but you can talk to any past employers to find out if someone is honest and committed to doing good work.
